Responsible for the impressive colours of this climber are three bracts that surround each cluster of flowers. In their middle is the actual, yellow and slim tubular flower, that usually lasts for only a few days - unlike the bracts that last for weeks. If a cluster of bracts comes to its end, the inflorescens dries out and looks like parchment. You should now remove them and cut the shoots. Cut off one half to two-thirds of the shoot grown since the last trimming. In case of a stem or a shrub trim as much as needed for a pleasant, round shape. Only 3-4 weeks later the Bougainvillea will grow new flowers, so that it blooms 4-5 times a year. Even with the short interruptions one can therefore allmost call them permanently blooming. In summer, fully foliated Bougainvilleas need plenty of water. In case of deficiency the leaves roll up. However, the pots should also not be permanently wet, especially in winter, because otherwise the roots might rot. Increase the pot size only gradually to slighly larger pots when you replant your Bougainvillea. Very large pots enhance the growth but not the bloom. Furthermore a large pot increases the risk of a damage by wetness.
